I know there are a handful of insane people (like me) who are dying to see this movie released on DVD. Strikes against it: Critical flop. Box-office bomb. Co-production between Disney and Paramount. (Not sure who currently owns home video rights.) Potential "rights issues" with any/all of the music (although this may not be an issue, since all the songs were written for the film.) Reasons it should be released: At this point in his roller-coaster career, Robert Altman is particularly respected. (Yes, he's always been respected, but Gosford Park did a lot for his visibility.) It's one of the most criminally underrated (and original) comic adaptations ever. Robin Williams. Much like other highly vilified movies (aka Hudson Hawk, Ishtar and 1941), Popeye has a loyal fanbase. If Popeye isn't a cult flick, I don't know what is! -- Look, I can clearly see why this one was a flop. It's odd and weird and not really a "kid's" flick. But I figure if people (again, like me) get excited for 'niche' releases like Krull, Killer Klowns and UHF, then Popeye surely deserves its day on DVD. Considering the reportedly difficult production and subsequent thrashings this movie received, I'd pay an extra 25 bucks for a Robert Altman commentary. Somebody back me up here!
